IMO, S1 is trying to cover everything and not mastering a lot of it. And some of it is very basic.
Why no effect slots allowing spaces to be skipped so a user can organize how they see fit? I only have experience with Logic & Pro Tools, so maybe this is not available in most DAWs. Come from 2 that offered this, not having it is very inconvenient. Being able to activate & deactivate a particular effect type for all tracks, for example, is not possible without jumping through hoops.
Why are we still relying on a plugin for stereo panning? I still don't get the benefit of balancing over actual panning.
I'm more about playing things in with keys & pads, but I've toyed with the Pattern Mode. Could be I'm not good with it versus folks being very familiar with FL pattern thing, but S1's version doesn't seem slick and feature rich.
Articulation maps is a genius feature by Logic. The composer side of me misses Logic.
I like a lot about S1, enough that I'm not seriously considering going back to Logic unless I can't work out why I'm getting crashes and my Komplete Kontrol disconnects almost daily. Aside from those problems, there's too much to like over Logic for my workflow. Macros is genius, for example. But some very basic things seemed to have been skipped over.
I'm cool with them trying to cover all bases along the way, not concentrating on any single element. But I'm hoping that sooner than later they address some basics that some long time users may be overlooking, not knowing what they're missing.

* They want user feedback (part of why they hired him)
I'm sure they do, but they sure make it inconvenient. Their forum doesn't have a suggestion section. Instead, there's Presonus Answers. The title doesn't imply this is where suggestions should be made. Not sure how others found out, but I stumbled upon it through a Google search. It's not organized in any way that I can tell, so you have to ask a question, check the results, hope that your wording matches what's been suggested and vote it up. If nothing comes up, you ask a question and hope others vote it up. Ehhh!
Not Presonus' fault, but only over the top features get much support. Basics like stereo panning had maybe 5-6 votes when I voted.

Lawrence’s color panel is a HUGE improvement - Presonus needs to add a color wheel by default and clean up the way clips are displayed in the arrangement window (especially that translucent setting - definitely needs higher contrast and opacity).
Yes!!! I've struggled with appearance settings but will be adding Lawrence's color panel this weekend. Another very basic thing that was overlooked. I can understand the limited color selection, I guess. But I can't think of a single reason why colors wouldn't be shown on a color wheel of some sort. What did they do, list colors in alphabetical order?
The groove baby, the groove...
